The New Jersey Historical Commission is pleased to present New in New Jersey. A series of programs devoted to advancing scholarship in New Jersey History. Be a part of the first talk on Sunday, September 30, 2012 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. at Drumthwacket where W. BARKSDALE MAYNARD will discuss his new book, Princeton: America's Campus.
Founded in 1746, Princeton is America's fourth-oldest university and one of the most beautiful places in the country. Its secrets are revealed in Barksdale Maynard's new, landmark publication, Princeton: America's Campus, the first book ever to deal exclusively with the architectural history of the university. The author of five prize-winning books, including the acclaimed Woodrow Wilson: Princeton to the Presidency, Barksdale Maynard has uncovered surprising new information about the centuries-old campus along with hundreds of historic photographs never reproduced before. Join us at Drumthwacket, the former estate of the prominent Princeton University benefactor Moses Taylor Pyne--and now the official residence of the Governor--for the the launch of New in New Jersey. The New Jersey Historical Commission is pleased to welcome the Drumthwacket Foundation as its partner for the first talk of the free series featuring new research and publications on New Jersey history.
